Tackling (or not) natural gas flaring and venting

Progress, and lack of it, by a multilateral initiative to cut down gas flaring - an oil industry practice that pours particularly large amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere - is discussed in an  article on Gas Flaring Reduction Progress, here. The article also mentions cold venting, which has an even worse greenhouse effect, since it releases pure methane (which has twenty-plus times more greenhouse effect per cubic metre than carbon dioxide).
